Vladimir Bidyovka: Mechanism for granting status of war veterans to Republican defenders is enshrined at legislative level
Many residents of Donbass stood up to defend their land in 2014. A number of defenders of the DPR have been unable to obtain the status of a war veteran so far, as this mechanism has not been working properly. With the adoption of amendments to a Law of the DPR “On social protection of war veterans”, this injustice is eliminated.
The Law provides for a clear procedure for determining a list of units, as well as for forming a list of persons, who took part in hostilities to defend the Donetsk People’s Republic. For this purpose, by order of the Head of the Donetsk People’s Republic Denis Pushilin, an interdepartmental commission is established, which includes representatives of the Administration of the Head of the DPR, as well as representatives of law enforcement agencies of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
The approved lists will be given to an authorized body, in this case – the Military Commissariat of the Donetsk People’s Republic, which will decide on the granting of the status of a war veteran and issuing the appropriate certificates.
I am sure that this mechanism will allow every defender of our state to receive deserved social guarantees.
